    May I know once I create an account and enable it as a demo account.

    What's the address/url i should link from main website?

    How do I use a demo account?

    Thanks.

    To enable demo mode on an account, go to WHM -> Account Functions -> Disable or Enable Demo Mode then select the account you wish to have demo mode enabled for.

    Note, it is recommended you keep a close eye on your server when enabling a demo account as it is commonly viewed as a potential security risk.

    You can redirect your users to your usual cPanel login URL. If you wish to allow your users one-click access to the demo, you can do like we do on our own demo:

    Code:
    http://...:2082/login/?user=x3demob&pass=x3demob
    Note the user= and pass= parameters for the username and password respectively.

    should i enabled my main domain for the purpose of demo, that means I have to display my own username and password to the public?

    so the safer way is to create another dummy domain and set it up as demo?

    And in order for the dummy domain name to work/function (url accessable: http://...:2082/login/?user=x3demob&pass=x3demob), I actually have to register a domain for demo purpose?

    Thanks David for your patient.

    I strongly recommend using a separate cPanel account that is only intended for demo purposes.

    What you can do is create a cPanel account for a subdomain (e.g. demo.example.com) and use that for your demo account.
